Tali needs a friend. More than that, she needs protection. After her parents move from North to South Wales, Tali does not find life easy. Moving up to the Comp would have been so much simpler back home, where she had lots of friends and where everybody spoke the same language. But at Gelli-afon Comprehensive, Tali sticks out like a sore thumb and becomes an easy target for bullies Fiona and S'mantha. In desperation, she wishes for a guardian angel and, to Tali's amazement, Atchy (real name un pronounceable) materialises in her bedroom. And that's where the fun really begins....for Atchy is no angel!
